Description

In her debut mystery, The Underdogs , Sara Hammel delivers a middle grade novel packed with suspense, intrigue, and a breathtaking twist .

Who killed Annabel Harper?

When a popular teen beauty's body is discovered by the pool at an elite tennis club, the regulars are shocked--especially twelve-year-old Evie and her best friend, Chelsea. While everyone else is haunted by the teen's death, Evie and Chelsea jump on the case, dogging the footsteps of the lead detective as he investigates. As temperatures soar over the summer, tensions rise, fingers are pointed, and a heroic act sets in motion a chain of events readers will never see coming.

Praise for The Underdogs :

"The big reveal in this mystery is not who murdered golden girl Annabel Harper at an exclusive Massachusetts tennis club--though that's startling enough. No, there's actually a far bigger surprise. Once they get to the end, mystery lovers will want to go back and read it all again to find the hidden clues. " -- School Library Journal

"Told from Chelsea's perspective in chapters that alternate before and after Annabel's murder, debut novelist Hammel cleverly disguises Chelsea's true identity, leaving that mystery for readers to solve just as the girls pinpoint Annabel's killer." -- Publishers Weekly

"The mystery format and Harriet the Spy antics keep the story from being bogged down by the heavy issues addressed. . . . This is a book that takes a chance and will genuinely surprise readers. " -- Booklist

" Absorbing and enjoyable ." -- Kirkus Reviews
